28°-50° Wine Workshop & Kitchen

The Fleet Street branch of a high-quality trio of wine bar/restaurants, equally good for food and wine

An abundance of wood and soft lighting give this City branch of the three-strong 28°-50°group a low-key, almost rustic feel. It’s a type of place you wouldn’t be surprised to find in Paris. Wine bars are often a funny hybrid of bar and restaurant: are you ordering food with your wine, or wine with your food? This place does it both ways, offering both proper meals and bar snacks of refined pedigree, including cheeses from La Fromagerie. While you can certainly splash out a barrelload on vino if you wish to (the ‘Collector’s List’), the ordinary list offers loads of interesting stuff for under £30 a bottle – and much of it by the glass, including a 75ml measure for those just wanting a taste.

I think this is a great option for a more mature crowd. I was here on a weeknight and it lacked buzz, and felt a bit stuffy and corporate. Wine list is obviously extensive, but we didn't think the wines on offer by the glass were all that impressive.

Went for lunch here, and have only positive things to say. All the waiting staff were fantastically helpful, the general manager and head chef came to talk to us and were both incredibly friendly and the food was absolutely fantastic. We were expecting given the gourmet-style menu that the portions would be measly, but all three courses were perfectly portioned and had an amazing mix of flavours that had clearly been really well-thought through and went very well together. All in all, an exceptional experience - I will be going back and would recommend to anyone!!

Great varied wine list, fantastic service and good food. Whether it's a gang of mates, a hot date or even a working lunch, 2850 fulfills the brief. Also worth visiting their sister 2850 in the West End.
